Antenna town on top of the Empire State Building, with broadcasting antennas for a variety of FM and television stations. Atop is an ERI master antenna. The story of its installation is Stations radiating from there include WQXR/105.9, WNYC-FM/93.9, WLTW/106.7, WSKQ/97/9, WXNY/96.3, WWFS/102.7, WRKS/98.7, WBAI/99.5, WBLS/107.5, WWPR/105.1, WHTZ/100.3, WXRK/92.3, WAXQ/104.3 and WKTU/103.5. All are 6kw horizontal and vertical except for WBAI (4.3), WBLS (4.2), WQXR (.61) and WRXP (6.2). It appears from here that WRXP uses the gold one-bay while the rest use the white two-bay above. Next down is a WPLJ/95.5 auxiliary antenna (6.6kw) and then three stations sharing a two-bay panel antenna: WQHT/97.1, WPLJ/95.5 and WCBS-FM/101.1. All three are 6.7kw. The old Alford can be seen below. At the level between the two FM systems is the new master antenna for New York's three TV stations still using the VHF band: WABC-DT on Channel 7, WPIX-DT on Channel 11 and WNET-DT on Channel 13. Unlike most TV stations after the digital transition of 2009, these stations still broadcast on their original analog channels.
